    So her entire point is that her team helped her build the business? You mean exactly what Obama was saying in his speech? That just because owners and CEOs are in charge, doesn’t mean they do all the work and therefore aren’t entitled to the vast majority of the earnings?

    Oh she has hard working truck drivers, so in other words she’s benefitted from public roads more than most people. Not to mention that her company has taken money from both the state and the federal government.

    Absolute hypocrite. Sickening really.

  2. Porkman,
    You say that this woman “has taken money” from the state and local goverment, when she actually sold them office supplies. Sitting on your ass, collecting a welfare check is what I call “taking money” from the government. She built a business. She earned it. Stop demonizing people who work hard. You are the hypocrite.

    Hi Sue,

    I’m sorry you can’t read, but $635,000 in federal assistance money is not a purchase of office supplies. Also, selling a product to the government means that you’re benefitting from tax dollars as well. No one is “demonizing” small business owners, that’s just more whining from the Republican party. The point is that in our beautiful country we’ve decided to work together to build things. Owners, employees, consumers, and tax payers. Do you really think that CEOs work 231 times harder than employees? Because that is the current wage disparity.

    But by all means, let’s vote for Mitt Romney so he can have another tax break at the expense of the middle class. He certainly works harder than everyone else.

    Best,
    PORKMAN
